apartment but the city. >> these are people who have lived many of them, you know, decades in a neighborhood who have contributed to making the neighborhood what it is. and i think it's only fair that they pay -- that they get enough to actually be able to stay here. >> reporter: the other side is making the same argument. >> a lot of these people i want to emphasize that they contribute to our community. they live here. they're from here. they might have an asset in their property. but that doesn't make them cash-rich. you know? they don't have this expendable income. >> reporter: he says he doesn't represent speculators but elderly san franciscans on a fixed income who say they need to move in caregivers. >> a lot of them this is going to be four years of social security for them. some of them rely only on their social security payments and we are looking at four years of social security payments just to relocate a tenant records the san francisco apartment association says this legislation will eventually evict the landlords out of san francisco forcing them to sell. either way, one thing is clear:
